I was pleasantly surprised with how much I loved this smoothie! I was a little hesitant about the mint leaves, but that's what really brought this smoothie alive! The mint complemented the ginger and papaya so well. I made this exactly as posted, except I used kefir in place of the yogurt. Thanks for sharing this unexpected delight!
